found michelle obama offers significant jobs since 1991. she is the only one who goes on vacation with the first family. >> host: that is an extraordinary relationship. tell us about her and valerie jarrett's background. >> guest: valerie jarrett was born iranian and is a noted blood researcher. she was born there and spend a lot of for topic following her parents around the middle east to the developing world and in some cases, western europe. so when she meets barack obama in 1991 at a cafÉ in chicago, they had a lot in common. they grew up in muslim countries. iran and indonesia. they had a different perspective. definitely on the left part of the american political spectrum. and they have a disdain for what they consider american parochialism. that becomes a bonding moment for them very early on. but let's not forget who valerie jarrett is to be obama's. she is the gilded arch gateway into the establishment. she knows everyone. she is from a prosperous family that has been successful for a long period of time she is the deputy chief of staff friend, she knows a lot of people.
